We haven't seen this Gray morph in this hole for over a year now.
They always have multiple holes.
Thanks for looking.

Nicely done and find... I too have several birds that use some regular holes.. The light here is really nice filling in the shadows. I bet its the snow bounce light..

Thanks James.
You are right about the snow.

Lovely shot of this camouflage master. He blends in so well against that trunk. Nice composition choice here as well.
Thanks for looking,

Nice one, Karl. I've never actually seen a screech before (other than in photos) - he does blend in well with his surroundings - perhaps that why.
(and yes, the lighting is really nice here)

Karl, A really nice habitat shot. You would almost have to know to look closely at the hole to see him.

Karl, fantastic look at this Owl, really cool shot.  Love all the textural interest here, along with the diagonal balance of compo with opposite corners blue - very well done.
